Not really such a Super Tuesday

A WINTRY, so-called Super Tuesday brought a degree of cold comfort to a few, but it conjured up an apocalyptic, infernal vision for a shocked majority.

Cold comfort perhaps for the lower paid public servant who has been promised that he or she will be given priority when, and if, conditions again allow pay increases.

Many will be relieved to hear that there are to be no further public service pay cuts before 2014, but does that mean that the wider body of taxpayers will have to pay a bigger price as a consequence?
